Check out the OR-1 Orang-E effects pedal by Mozztronics.
High quality, boutique, Australian Made!
There are a few iconic valve guitar amps that we at Mozztronics adore. Apart from the british 800 series amps, the AC amp used by the Beatles & Brian May, the American ’59 bass amp loved by guitarists, the other is an amp named after a fruit and a colour. We have used the 72 graphic version and made our emulation into a solid state footswitchable pedal, which we have named the “ORANG-e” in honour of its parentage. ORANG is malay for “man”, and “man” does this pedal bump & grind. This pedal is not a dirt pedal as such, it’s our emulation of this classic amp.
To do full justice to the original amp, and to get the maximum in tone versatility we included the full 2 knob tone stack and the FAC control in this pedal. A single tone control, or just a bass & treble control wasn’t going to cut it with this pedal. The FAC control switches different inter-stage coupling capacitors for different Frequency response.
GAIN controls the amount of gain from the first stage, BASS and TREBLE are a classic 2 knob tone stack as found in the original amp, andF-Ckprovides for differentFrequency response with the switchableCkcoupling capacitors . VOLUME adjusts the overall volume out of the pedal.
As with the amplifier this pedal replicates, classic 70’s rock sounds live here, and turn up the gain for added rawkus-ness.
Many people have asked me, Moz, why did you choose these four amps to make pedal versions of. Each of these amps is (in my view) a classic amp. Each of these amps has a totally different tone stack design. Each of these amps, while having a push pull power stage uses different phase inverters and power tubes. The ’72 Orange has a bandaxall tone stack, cathodyne phase inverter & EL34 tubes, the Bassman has a fender tone stack, long tail pair phase inverter & 6L6 tubes, the Hiwatt has a hiwatt tone stack, long tail pair phase inverter & EL34 tubes, and the AC30 has a Vox tone stack, long tail pair phase inverter & EL84 tubes. Each tone stack, phase inverter and tube type will give a different sound, breakup differently and respond to playing style differently. In my opinion, all other amps can be classified as variants of these four classic amp designs, so if you want a soldano or boogie type sound (for example), grab a tonemeister pedal and turn the gain up. But what about a JCM800 you may say. I reckon my EX1 expandrive does this type of sound very well already, so i have not done one as part of this set of four pedals. TM1 Tonemeister, DL30 Driveline, HW1 wHoWatt, and OR1 Orange-e.
Mozztronics uses the industry standard Boss style 2.1mm center negative 9V DC socket for the power supply connection.
